BURLINGTON, Mass. – May 22, 2018Jeanne Hopkins, Executive Vice President and CMO at Ipswitch®, producer of award-winning and easy to use secure file transfer and network management software, is a panelist for the webinar, “How to Generate $1M in Pipeline without Spending More on Advertising or Hiring,” sponsored by Drift, providing the world's leading conversational marketing and sales platform. Jeanne is joined by panelists, Dave Gerhardt, VP of Marketing at Drift and Max Altschuler, Founder and CEO of Sales Hacker. Together, they reveal how conversational marketing is changing the demand gen landscape and what to do to get similar results.

“I took a couple thousand dollar bet that conversational marketing could help my team reach their goals, and it paid off,” said Jeanne Hopkins. “This method created just over a million dollars of pipeline in Q1 by trying one new thing. And I didn’t spend more money on advertising and didn’t hire anyone new.”

Webinar attendees learn the real definition of conversational marketing, what it takes to be successful with conversational marketing and how to handle common objections to conversational marketing. Speakers also break down how Ipswitch rolled this out to its marketing and sales team.
